In 10 years in the league, Steph Curry has had a profound impact on not only the Warriors' organization, but on the NBA as a whole. He literally changed the game.

Still, according to Michael Jordan, he isn't quite at the Hall-of-Fame level yet. Here is what he said to Craig Melvin on Today:

Jordan was asked by Melvin if he would amend the list of players he said would be unbeatable in a pickup game in a promotion for NBA 2K14 back in 2013. At the time, Jordan picked Hakeem Olajuwon, Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen, and James Worthy. The NBA legend said that he wouldn't change the lineup even though six years had passed since he made the list. "When I'm going in the trenches, I played against and with all these guys. I'm going with who I know," Jordan said.

Melvin replied: "So, Steph Curry shouldn't be offended when he watches this."

And then Jordan said this of the Golden State Warriors star and three-time NBA champion: "I hope not. He's still a great player. Not a Hall of Famer yet though."

He didn't go into too much detail about that opinion, but it's certainly a hot take.

As a 6x All-Star, 6x All-NBA player, 3x Champion, and 2x MVP, most would consider it a given that Curry is a first-ballot hall-of-famer. Clearly, not everyone agrees.
